Latest News
One of the showpiece events of the domestic oval racing season, the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship, takes place this Saturday night (October 8th) at Tullyroan Oval.
Racing from the formula has been exceptional in 2022, providing close, competitive action on a regular basis. Portadown’s Scott Cochrane starts on pole position, having scored more points than his rivals since the season commenced back at Easter. Alongside him on the front row will be World, NI Points and defending Irish Champion Jordan Rochford, also from Portadown.

Row two consists of recently crowned European Champion Drew McKeown from Bleary and Banbridge ace Denver Grattan, whilst Co. Antrim duo Conor Hughes and Michael Woods occupy row three. The recent Hoosier Challenge Series Grand Final was a superb race between Cochrane and eventual winner McKeown, and hopes are high for a repeat in what is the Blue Riband race of the local season - this race really has all the ingredients to be a classic!

The 6-11 year old stars of the future will also be contesting their Irish Championship, with Crumlin’s Riley Dawson-Stirling on pole position ahead of Coalan Fegan, Charlie Johnston, Jack Morrison and Noah Teggart. With little between the young aces, another great race lies in prospect.

There will also be Tullyroan Challenge Cup showdowns for both the Stock Rods and Thunder Rods. Glenavy’s Dan Shannon will be chasing a hat-trick of wins in the Stock Rods event, but he will face tough opposition from World Champion Colin McNiece, European, British and National Champion Mark Crawford and Irish Champion Jonny Cardwell.

David Wilson will defend the Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, whilst Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie will head the Superstox entry on his first Tullyroan outing as the new World Champion.

The first race blasts off the Tullyroan Oval grid at 6.30pm.

Former National Hot Rods World Champion Adam Maxwell was on top form at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, the Crumlin man taking a decisive final win to land the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup. The Ulster Championship for 1300 Stock Cars was successfully defended by Gawley’s Gate driver Chris Hamill after a dominant display, whilst other feature race wins fell to Cullybackey’s Rick Purdy (Thunder Rods), Co Meath’s Declan O’Connor (Stock Rods) and Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow (Junior Productions).

The National Hot Rods were contesting Round 4 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI and the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup, raced annually in memory of the former Cullybackey racer. Richard Stewart took a clear win on the road in heat one, but was unfortunately disqualified after clashing with a backmarker mid race. That handed victory to Podge McQuaid over Derek McMillan and Adam Maxwell. Heat two saw a maiden victory in the elite formula for Garvagh’s Johnny McCloy, as he led home a huge places scrap which fell the way of Maxwell ahead of Ben McKee.
The final saw an early caution period for a big crash which eliminated Gareth Bevan and McQuaid after what looked like an engine failure in the Bevan machine. Thomas Dilly then took over out front, and for some distance he fended off huge attacks from Maxwell and Glenn Bell. It was a tremendous race which kept the crowd on their toes throughout, with Maxwell getting in front to land a great win after not being outside the top three places all evening. McKee impressed as he grabbed second, with Bell having to make do with third despite his huge efforts on the outside line.

The Ulster Championship was on offer for the 1300 Stock Cars, with the first of the reversed grid heats falling to Chris Hamill ahead of Jonathan Brown. Heat two was another action packed encounter which saw the sparks fly around the circuit, with James Crossett taking a great win over Hamill and Ivan Elliott.
Hamill and Crossett shared the front row for the Ulster Championship final, with Chris managing to escape the heavy bumper exchanges early on to make good his escape. From there he cruised to a successful defence of his title ahead of Josh McKinstry and Brown.

Tom Archibald held sway out front in the opening Thunder Rods heat, before David Wilson eased past to take the win with Daniel Rodgers in third. Heat two saw recent returnee Chrissy Dempsey grabbing victory, with Archibald and Rodgers again second and third.
The final turned out to be the race of the night, as Rick Purdy hit the front with Adam Graham right on his tail. The two circulated side by side for many laps in a tremendous dice, with Graham’s great efforts coming to nothing after he clipped the wall late on. As Cullybackey’s Purdy took a hard earned victory in some style, Andrew McLean and Dempsey completed the podium. Graham limped home in fourth after his late race dramas.

A fine field of 20 Stock Rods impressed all evening, with some close competitive action. Ballymena’s Steven McKane celebrated his recent return to the tracks with a great win in heat one over multi-champions Mark Crawford and Dan Shannon. Heat two saw teenager Declan O’Connor take the win after a steady drive out front, leading home McKane and Johnny Gillespie.
The final was once again all about O’Connor, as the latest graduate from the Junior Productions formula showed the seniors how to do it with a clear win. McKane just couldn’t get on terms with the flying 16-year-old and had to settle for second ahead of Gillespie.

Tight, competitive racing was again the name of the game in the Junior Productions, with Lexie Crooks continuing her great recent form to take the opening heat win over Jack Morrow and Jake Devlin. British Champion Morrow then took the win in the second heat after eventual runner up Andrew Hawe saw his big lead wiped out by a late caution.
The final once again saw Hawe out front and setting the pace, but a late race shake up once again opened the door for the experienced Morrow to come through for the silverware ahead of Leyton Hughes and Aaron Dynes.

A fantastic Sunday afternoon’s race action at Tullyroan Oval saw Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd win an exciting Rookie Bangers Irish Championship. There was some top quality racing on show throughout the meeting, with recently crowned European Champion Drew McKeown from Bleary hitting the outside line to win the Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series for 2.0 Hot Rods.
Local favourite Nigel Jackson was another who pulled off a superb final victory, this time in the Lightning Rods, whilst other feature race winners were Portadown duo Daniel Stewart in the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup and Rab Preston in the Thunder Rods.

A full grid well in excess of 30 cars lined up in season points order for the Rookie Bangers Irish Championship. There was a great race out front amongst the top drivers, with polesitter William McFaul and John Goligher both enjoying spells in the lead. There were incidents galore around the circuit for the drivers to avoid, but Stephen Boyd managed to surge ahead in the midway point of the race to land the title after a great drive. McFaul took second ahead of Marc Morrell.
The first support heat saw Gavin Gamble lead most of the way before McFaul nipped past on the final bend to win. Heat two saw another action packed encounter, with Josh Goligher taking the win in this one.

The opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat fell to David Kernohan who took a fine win ahead of a huge places scrap which eventually saw Allen Cherry take second over Colin McFarland. Heat two had Ronan McNally ahead, only for him to be challenged by Ally Neill late on. Neill made a spirited charge on the outside line, with McNally holding on by a hairs breadth at the flag.
The Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series was lined up in aggregate series order, which saw Scott Cochrane and Mervyn Emerson sharing the front row. Cochrane quickly settled into the lead ahead of Drew McKeown, and after a fantastic first half of the race McKeown was able to haul himself right around the outside to grab the lead. It was a remarkable drive from a teenager who is right on top of his game at present. As Drew took the win, Cochrane and Emerson completed the top three, and they all received new race tyres courtesy of the sponsors Hoosier UK.

Both Lightning Rods heats fell to the BMW of Dean Catherwood, as he led home Nigel Jackson in the opener with World Champ Ricky Shaw second in heat two.
Those wins elevated Catherwood to the star grade for the final, but he was still to be a major player in a superb race. Aaron Brunton led initially before Martin O’Flaherty took over, with Catherwood chasing hard in second ahead of Stuart Agnew and Jackson. With the top four running nose to tail, Jackson wasted little time in hitting the outside line. In a fantastic drive he surged right around the top three to hit the front and take the silverware in emphatic style. Catherwood and Agnew filled the podium spots at the end of a great race.

Daniel Stewart took a clear win in the opening Junior Productions heat ahead of Jack Morrow, before Lauren Berry took a popular heat two win over Aaron Dynes.
The final for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup was all about Stewart and Morrow for much of the distance, with Daniel ahead but Jack trying everything he had to get past on both the inside and outside lines. It was a great race for the fans to enjoy, with Stewart just hanging on to win. Matthew Weir nabbed second near the end as the lead pack tripped over some backmarkers, with Morrow having to make do with third having driven a great race.

Jason Darragh was the winner of the first Thunder Rods heat ahead of Adam Graham, before Rick Purdy took heat two ahead of Rab Preston. That was perhaps a sign of things to come for Preston, and he then ran down long time final leader Tom Archibald to take the honours in the feature race. Graham took another second place finish ahead of Archibald and Purdy at the flag.

Kyle Beattie from Aughnacloy was victorious in the 61st running of the Superstox Championship of the World at Aghadowey Oval last weekend. With a number of major title races up for decision over the two days of racing, Galgorm’s Shane Murray was crowned National Hot Rods British Champion and Bleary’s Drew McKeown won the 2.0 Hot Rods European Championship

A full field of 34 Superstox came to grid for the Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares World Championship race, one of the oldest and most prestigious in the sport of oval racing. England’s Michael Green was on pole position alongside local star Craig McConnell. As expected the opening laps were hectic, with an early caution for turn one drama quickly followed by another, again for an incident on the Brown Trout Bend.
Green and McConnell both had got their noses in front early on, but it was now Kyle Beattie who hit the top spot. Despite McConnell’s best efforts to get back on terms as the race progressed, it was Beattie who took the chequered flag to tremendous applause all around the stadium. McConnell was a gallant runner up with Curtis Greer coming through for third place, ahead of defending champion Nick Roots and fellow Englishman Green.

Both the Allcomers Heat and Meeting Final on Saturday fell the way of Berkshire’s Chris Bradbury amidst some tremendous racing.
Sunday’s action centred on the Irish Open Championship, and after Green and Ed Davis shared the heats it was Green who came through to win the title for the third time in a row. Beattie and McConnell filled the podium places.

There were three heats to sort out qualification for the big entry in the Cherry Pipes National Hot Rods British Championship, with Scotland’s Gordon Alexander taking the opener before an ankle injury unfortunately sidelined him for the weekend. Portadown’s Gary Woolsey then won heat two with Kells driver Carl Sloan victorious in the third qualifier.
Aggregate points saw Galgorm’s Shane Murray on pole position for the British Championship final following a brace of third place finishes, with England’s Perry Cooke alongside. Murray powered clear at the start and was never challenged as he took a dominant win to land the British title. Adam Maxwell came through for second ahead of David Casey.

Sunday saw the coveted Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy up for grabs, with a fantastic opening heat keeping the crowd entertained as Waterford’s Casey took the win. The second heat fell the way of Glenn Bell, with Murray again the man on pole position for the final after consistent finishes in both heats races.
Despite the best efforts of placemen Bell and John Christie, Murray was once again unstoppable as he cruised to the beautiful trophy and the handsome prize fund that went with it.

The Cherry Pipes 2.0 Hot Rods European Championship was another event to attract a huge field, with the keenly contested heat wins falling to Portadown’s Adam Heatrick, Scottish star Keith Brown and Bleary’s Drew McKeown.
A shower of rain just before the off in Sunday’s European Championship race just added to the drama, with McKeown the first to show ahead of Conor Hughes. Hughes finally found a way past with a great outside line pass, and he stretched ahead out front. Late in the race McKeown came back with a late surge, getting back on terms and finding a way down the inside of Hughes for the lead. Conor came back and bundled his way past again to take the flag, but after a Stewards Enquiry he was demoted two places for the late contact on McKeown. That gave Drew his first major championship win and at just nineteen years old the youngest ever European Champion, with World Champion Jordan Rochford in second ahead of the demoted Hughes.

The Ninja Karts impressed all weekend with almost 30 young stars in action from right across the UK. Jack Jones won both heats on Saturday in some style, but it was Belfast’s Caolan Fegan who took the DMC Gold Cup Final after on the road winner Mason Carberry was demoted for jumping a restart. Stuart Shevill took the runner up spot ahead of the relegated Carberry.
Sunday saw the prestigious Keir Millar Memorial Trophy up for grabs, with the heat wins falling to the English duo of Carberry and Clark Ferris. The final turned out to be an absolutely fantastic encounter, with Scottish star Shevill taking the win by the narrowest of margins ahead of Ferris and National & English Champion Charlie Weston.

The Junior Productions completed the line up, with the heats shared between Lexi Crooks and Brandon Litter. But it was Dungannon’s Jake Devlin who powered through to land the final honours for his first ever victory in the sport, and no better time to do it than in front of the huge Speedweekend crowd!
